HTC One Remix Review
16 September 2014
Summary: The HTC One Remix is truly the little brother of HTC's M8--it's smaller and less powerful, but still pretty awesome. It gets the job done in a stylish package, and for a free phone, that's a big achievement. I also like the quality dual speakers, BlinkFeed app and 13-MP camera.
Conclusion: Verizon’s HTC One Remix may not have all the high-end specs of its bigger cousin, the HTC One M8, but it works like a solid mid-range smartphone. The Remix’s cameras are top notch and its processor is speedy, but some aspects of the device’s design and the 720p screen bring it down a notch. Verizon’s added apps and bloatware take up more room than is strictly necessary and exclusivity limits the phone’s reach.
Pros: Sturdy metal back, Excellent cameras, Solid mid-range specs
Cons: Not a full HD screen, Slower processor, Bezels and onscreen buttons waste space
Excerpt: After a successful debut on Android, HTC re-architected its second-generation HTC One for the Windows Phone platform. The result: Gorgeous, flagship-level hardware repainted with a fresh interface. Windows Phone has been struggling to gain market share in the U.S. , especially among high-end handset buyers. Now, those itching to give the mobile OS a try have another high-end hardware option: the HTC One.
Pros: Affordable $100 price tag for a premium piece of hardware. Stellar battery life and solid performance. Impressive audio for a smartphone.
Cons: Overall camera quality is meh, and could use better image stabilization. Windows Phone platform still lacks many big-name app and game titles.
Excerpt: The new HTC One is a very, very nice phone. It has even better hardware than last year’s model , and a few new smart and well-chosen software tricks. Some of the new software are mere gimmicks, but in the time I spent testing it, I came away more pleased then puzzled. To put the HTC One through its paces, I took it to the happiest place on earth: Disneyland.
Pros: Highly refined hardware with a beautiful all-metal finish. Excellent battery life. Sense has been streamlined even further, with a cleaner Blink interface and new launch gestures. Good speakers for a phone.
Cons: Camera still disappoints. Some of the features are gimmicks and not useful beyond impressing the other guests at the pool party. Skip the plastic Dot case accessory — it’s cool, but way too expensive.
Summary: There are a lot of great Android phones on the market right now, but two stand out: the Nexus 5 and the new HTC One. The Nexus 5 is Google’s purest vision for Android, the One the platform's most mature and developed form. I desperately wish it took better pictures, and I’m reluctant to buy or recommend it until it does, but I like absolutely everything else.
Pros: Gorgeous industrial design, Great performance, Solid battery life
Cons: Weak, inconsistent camera, Big, a little chunky
Excerpt: The next gen HTC One model is called just that, no ‘X’, no ‘+’ or 'S', just a simple number denomination. So far, the Taiwanese company hasn’t been faring all too well with devices like the HTC Butterfly proving to be way too pricey and the Windows Phone 8X and 8S models still remaining under the radar. This could be HTC’s big break back into the majorly relevant league, but the price of Rs. 42,900 (MOP) might still be a deterrent for some.
Summary: The HTC One blends an unmatched premium design for Android phones with impressive performance, a beautiful 1080p display and rich, front-mounted speakers. HTC Sense 5.0, with its Blinkfeed feature, adds flavor to the stock Android OS. And while Samsung's TouchWiz software offers more features, Sense has a cleaner look and feel and suffers from less lag.
